  • Study Finds That Dog Owners Live Longer

It is not clear exactly how the dogs helped avert heart disease, or whether getting one directly led to better health, cautioned the paper's senior author Tove Fall, who is also an associate professor in epidemiology at Uppsala University.

A new study says that having a dog may keep your heart healthy in the old age.

In Sweden, pet owners are required to register their docs since 2001. They are also studying the gut microbiome of dog owners. People who live alone with their dogs see their risk for death decrease by about 33%, and their chances of dying from a cardiovascular disease goes down by 36%.

As a single dog owner, an individual is the sole person walking and interacting with their pet as opposed to married couples or households with children, which may contribute to greater protection from cardiovascular disease and death, said the study. "Alternatively, it could be reverse causality - people who are fitter and more active are more likely to own a dog".

Unfortunately, Tracee also proved she doesn't know how to start a feud OR gather an entourage to join her at the show. The plunging dress featured a high collar which came up to her ears and numerous peplums down the bodice and sleeves.


The data found that dog owners tend to be younger than non dog owners, as well as residents of areas with a lower population density AKA probably not a horribly polluted city.

The scientists added that owners of dogs who were originally bred for hunting, like terriers and retrievers, were found to have the lowest rates of heart disease among the group of 40 to 80-year-olds examined. (Jesus Christ) Fenton was a hunting breed.

This guy is fit because his dog is fit, you get me?

Dogs could alleviate social isolation, depression and loneliness, the study said. The researchers compared the health of people who owned and didn't own dogs by cross checking with Sweden's detailed dog ownership databases. But the authors of the study attempted to clarify the reasons further. There is some inherent quality that a dog has that tears at your heart when it looks at you with puppy eyes and the wagging tail.
